Anyone know of any good carpet cleaners out there? I want something off the shelf because I start college nxt week and want to clean my car up before I start. I have a Jeep and the stains on the carpet are kind of bad because I dont have floor mats so all the salt/snow/dirt etc... is in them. I dont have a rug doctor nor do I want to rent one so I dont want to soak the mats. Ill try to get my hands on a brush to so I can scrub it well."Life is to short to drive a slow car"

About the knife. Spray bad area. Let soak for a min or two. Take a butter knife:
Hold knife by handle and use the dull/top of the knife and rub the knife on the carpet.
Basically you want to move the fibers back and forth and pull the stain to the top and blotting it with the rag and repeat.
Hope I made sense

Now I need to try it. I assume a local auto parts store will have it?

The only kind I can find is the "Instant stain remover". Is this the right one? I will go to Lowes and pick some up tommorow. I will also get some pics tonight to show you what I'm dealing with. The stains have been there for a while so I'm hoping they go away.

Spray a generous amount all over the carpet where it's stained. The Folex bottle has spray & stream. Turn it to stream, it's much easier. Let it sit
for about 5 or 10 minutes. Scrub it with a brush.(doesn't matter what kind)
After that vacumm it out with a wet/dry vac. Letting it sit will be the key
to eliminating the stain.
For carpeted mats this is what I do.
Take them out and use a hose and get them wet.
Spray on the Folex and sit(same amount of time)
Scrub them good.
Spray off residule with the hose and vacuum after.

Took it out pretty well. Will clean it better tommorow and take it to the car wash. Can I use this on my seats too? They are not leather.
